Doors Open St. Marys

Doors Open St. Marys

On Saturday, September 23, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., visitors can travel through time by exploring several historic sites in St. Marys. Fifteen properties including the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will be welcoming visitors as part of Doors Open, a province-wide event that highlights Ontario’s architectural treasures.

Stop by the new “Ferguson Jenkins Way” sign for a photo before coming into the Hall of Fame for a free tour to see our newest artifacts including Hall of Famer Rob Thomson’s 2023 All-Star game jersey, hat and shoes.

Along with the Hall of Fame being open, other sites around town include the St. Marys Museum, Riverwalk Commons, Andrew L. Hodges Funeral Home, five historic churches, several municipal buildings, the St. Marys Public Library, The Station Gallery and Broken Rail Brewing.

Friends of the St. Marys Museum will once again be hosting mobility bus heritage tours throughout the day. Departing hourly from Town Hall, these tours are an excellent way to see St. Marys’ heritage highlights from the comfort of an air conditioned, accessible bus. Visitors can pre-register for their preferred timeslot by calling the St. Marys museum or can sign up on the day of on a first come, first served basis.

Information headquarters for Doors Open will be a tent in front of Town Hall. Maps will be available, as well as last-minute news about special “added-value” features planned for many of the sites. Council Chambers will be open, and visitors can view work underway in the auditorium as the St. Marys Community Players prepare for their fall production.
